The Cabinet endorsed formal amendments to the Aadhaar and Other
Laws (Amendment) Bill 2019, enhancing Aadhar in India. It offered a fillip
to India's sugarcane farming industry. The Act offers, subject to
authentication, for the use of Aadhaar number as evidence of a person's

conduct upcoming auctions, which will be the first for 5G airwaves.

on the Wall Street overnight. However, both Nikkei and Hang Seng were
trading up 0.34% and 0.02%, respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
Majority of the U.S. markets touched all-time highs on the back of gains
in chip stocks as investors shrugged off regulatory concerns around the
tech sector.
Majority of the European markets fell following weak cues from
disappointing economic data emanating out of France and Germany.
Investors also awaited the European Central Bank’s policy meet,
scheduled on Jul 25, 2019. Expectations are that the central bank may cut
